Revitalization and Renewal


Following the long dark times, we must face the fact that 70% of francophone children lost their language and their culture. That said, the 1960s were the dawn of 50 years of renewal and revitalization. The Government of Canada passed a law and subsequently amended it to declare Canada’s official languages and took steps to help flourish the French language minority and the new Charter of Rights and Freedoms. In Alberta, the ground gained was not without its challenges, but the organization and the resistance of the community brought substantial advancements and essential services.
